Quebec is fortunate in that it can rely on green, diversified and abundant energy resources. This guarantees a great quality of life for its citizens and creates business opportunities for Quebecers around the world. It also enables the Quebec government to pursue its strong commitment to combatting climate change and set ambitious objectives moving towards a greener economy. In Minister Moreau's mind, the way forward is clear: we must change our ways of doing things and innovation and solidarity are key.
